Other Programs

In addition to our major programs, which feature the ongoing annual involvement of hundreds of San Jose Fire Fighters, we also sponsor and participate in many smaller or one-time events.

A very small sample of those in the recent past include:

Turning Wheels

Partnering with Turning Wheels for free bike donation, building and repair clinics.

Partnering with San José City Councilmembers for community events, such as the Great Christmas Tree give-away event hosted by San Jose District 5 Councilmember Magdalena Carrasco in East San José.

State Assembly Member and Senators

Partnering with State Assembly Member and Senators for community events, such as with Assemblymember Evan Low and the West Valley Presbyterian Church to host Holiday Gift Events for those in need. Fire Fighters provided food, refreshments and free portraits to the guests in attendance. Kids enjoyed a holiday craft station and of course toy give-a-way.

Individual Involvement

In addition to being involved through our own organizations or through partnerships with other organizations, many members of San Jose Fire Fighters are individually involved with your community.
  • They are your little league coaches.
